WP Simple Pay has been a game changer for my business. There is no simpler way to accept credit card payments with Stripe on your site. We offer subscriptions with setup fees and this plugin handled these needs beautifully. Their support is unrivaled too.
Brian Casel, Founder of Audience Ops
There is a small 3% credit card fee per-transaction plus Stripe fees while using WP Simple Pay Lite. Upgrade to Pro for no added credit card form fees and priority support.
WP Simple Pay is a verified member of the Stripe partner program. This program recognizes software that meets Stripe’s strict quality requirements and provides users of WP Simple Pay and Stripe with the confidence they need to trust us both with their payment form integrations.
Below are a few examples of ways you can set up Stripe payment and credit card forms with WP Simple Pay. See our payment form templates to try them out for yourself.
💳 Payment Form Drag & Drop Builder
Drag and drop to add a custom amount entry, a coupon code field, various custom field types, subscription plan selection, a payment summary and more.
All data entered into these custom payment fields are stored as “metadata” with each Stripe payment record within your Stripe dashboard, so everything is viewable alongside all payment or subscription plan data.
💳 3 Payment Form Display Types
Select from the on-site embedded, on-site overlay, or Stripe Checkout payment form display types.
Compare them by viewing some of our payment form templates:
💳 Use Stripe Checkout Payment Form Pages
If you need only minimal payment form customizations and don’t need an overlay payment form, you can utilize Stripe’s fully-hosted checkout pages to accept credit card payments. You can set a few options when using Stripe Checkout, but when this option is selected, Stripe dictates what can and cannot be configured on the checkout page as it is served up by Stripe’s servers.
We paid developers for several hours to do what WP Simple Pay accomplished in minutes. A no-brainer investment for us.
Justin McGill, Founder of LeadFuze
💳 Allow Custom Credit Card Payment Amounts
Set a one-time credit card payment amount or let your site visitors pay what they want. Optionally specify minimum and default amounts.
💳 Add and Customize Subscription Options in Stripe
Connect a payment button to an individual Stripe plan or let your site visitors pick a plan to subscribe to. Add a custom amount option, charge a setup fee or tie into free trials.
View a few of these subscription templates:
- Opt-in to recurring subscription payments
- Allow customer or donor to enter a recurring custom amount
- Add an initial setup fee to the first payment
You can also set up installment plans to end subscriptions after a specific number of charges.
💳 Offer Discounts with Coupon Codes in Stripe
Percent or amount-off coupon codes added in your Stripe dashboard can be used in your payment forms.
Use with subscriptions or one-time payments, and optionally add a total amount label that updates real-time.
I’ve set up payment processing on over a dozen sites and it usually takes forever just to get up and running. Using WP Simple Pay I was accepting Stripe payments in no time. It’s one of the best decisions I made while launching my new product.
Mike Taber, Founder of Bluetick
💳 Add Apple Pay and Google Pay Buttons to Stripe Payment forms
Give your site visitors the option to pay using Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Microsoft Pay with a single button in your custom embedded or overlay payment forms.
Anyone with a browser and device combination that allows one of these options will see the new payment button.
💳 Accept ACH Debit Payments with Stripe
Give your U.S. customers the option to pay directly from their bank accounts with ACH debit payments and take advantage of lower fees in Stripe. ACH payments on Stripe cost 0.80%, capped at $5, with no monthly fees or verification fees.
💳 Accept Buy Now, Pay Later Payments with Klarna and Afterpay/Clearpay
With a buy now, pay later payment method enabled, your customers get more payment flexibility, allowing them to purchase what they want now and pay over time. Your business receives the full payment upfront and is protected from fraud, while your customers pay nothing or only a portion of the total upfront without fees.
💳 More Alternative Payment Methods with Stripe
Even more alternative payment methods for your credit card payment forms are supported by WP Simple Pay and Stripe. Check out these templates:
💳 Customized Payment Confirmation Details with Stripe
Easily customize the credit card payment confirmation details your customers see within the post editor using placeholder tags.
